Eating & Shopping on a Saturday

Heeeelloooo Saturday!!! I’m so happy that it’s the weekend again, yipee!!! The weather’s sooo good right now although we had a rainy morning. I’m eating moon-cake whilst typing up this post, haha! The mooncake festival is just around the corner I think so we bought a box of moon-cake from the oriental store just then. It’s so yummy!!! But it’d be even better if they had kuachi inside the filling… 😦

Mr S and I headed to Typika Artisan Roasters at Claremont for breakfast this morning. LOVE the interior decor of Typika!! The place was packed with people and there were people queuing up when we first got there. But we only had to wait for 15 minutes or so before we were seated. Food was served pretty quickly and the staff were very friendly! I must go back and try their lunch menu next since my office is within walking-distance away.

Mushroom Filled Crepe
This is what I had – mushroom filled crêpe, which was delicious by the way!

After breakfast, we headed to Claremont Quarter for a stroll. Haven’t been there for a long, long time although it’s so near my work place. Used to do all my grocery shopping there when I was still renting at Claremont. We grabbed lots of Blu-Ray discs from JB-Hifi ‘cos they having a “Buy 2 get 1 free” promo at the moment. The Blu-Ray discs were selling for $15.98 but it’s now $10.65 each after discount! Yay!!!

Afterwards, we headed over to Recollections by Lost Souls to meet up with Sophia, who is also a seamstress. I needed her help in altering my dress for my cousin’s wedding in September. Sophia has her own fashion label – Rosie & Broken and her label is available at Recollections by Lost Souls. It’s always lovely to see Sophia because she’s so bubbly and silly 😛

And guess what else I did whilst I was there? S-H-O-P!! Amazingly, Recollections by Lost Souls stocks pre-loved and brand new designer goods in store at affordable prices!!

Yours truly came home with a shopping bag!

Gucci Cardigan B&W

My very first Gucci cardigan! Now before you scoff and complain that I’m such a spendthrift, this beautiful number only costs me $150 and it’s BRAND NEW with tags and extra buttons and all!!! SCORE!!!



I have a funny story, which is too good not to share!

Two nights ago, Mr S and I went out for dinner at night. I’ve been getting so lazy to cook nowadays so we’ve been eating out a lot for the past few weeks. And trust me, it’s doing my waist and thighs no good at all 😦 I really need to get my cooking mood back!!

Anyway, so yeah, we decided to head to a nearby local Chinese restaurant for mee sua. When we stepped into the restaurant, it was empty, except for a man sitting at the last table. I glanced at the counter, it was empty as well so I shifted my eyes back to the man. He was staring at us at the same time as well. We were both staring at each other for the next five seconds or so. At this point I was quite desperate to be seated already because Mr S were both tired and hungry.

Now, I have NO IDEA what got into me, but all of a sudden, I had a feeling that the man staring right at us must be the business owner. Why? ‘Cos the restaurant’s empty and he’s the only one there? Or is it ‘cos of the can of drink and newspapers in front of him that made him look like a boss chillin’ out at his restaurant? Whatever it was, I was pretty certain that he’s the business owner.

So, I lifted my right arm and my two fingers, while keeping eye contact with the man and mouthed, “Table for two.” When he didn’t respond to my request and just continued staring back at me, I knew at that moment that I WAS AN IDIOT!!! I had mistaken a paying customer as the restaurant’s business owner and asked for him to give us a table!!! Arhhhh!!

Then as if the timing couldn’t be any better, the daughter of the business owner FINALLY popped out at the counter from the kitchen. So I quickly shifted my body slightly to face her and asked for a table for two. AGAIN. To the RIGHT person this time. *Face palm*

Yup, yours truly had embarrassed herself once again. I couldn’t stop laughing at myself afterwards, while the man was still waiting for his takeaway order a few tables away from us, LOL LOL!!! Mr S said that I had spontaneously flashed the man a “Peace” sign. LOL LOL!!!
